May 22, 1813
NEW-YORK HERALD, May 22, 1813 Page 3 has 1 1/2 columns taken up with a fine & detailed account of the siege of Fort Meigs. A British force under Brigadier-General Henry Procter failed to capture Fort Meigs, but they did win a victory over an American relief force. Work on building Fort Meigs began after the American defeat at Frenchtown in January of 1813, ending any chance of a winter campaign recapturing Detroit.
Four pages, a tiny repair to page 2, good condition.
